Daily Detroit River Walleye Charters

Motor City Charters offers morning and evening Detroit River walleye charters for up to 4 fishermen.
     Every spring, Detroit area fishermen experience the worlds greatest walleye fishing right in our hometown! Millions of walleye enter the Detroit River for the annual spawning run creating an incredible local fishery. The sheer number of walleye and trophy sized fish has made this a legendary spring time fishery, attracting anglers from all over the country!

By the beginning of April, the Detroit River walleye run has begun.   Large female walleye enter the river providing an excellent opportunity to catch record class fish.  The bite is not as fast as it is later in the spring but the walleye can be huge! As April progresses, more and more walleye enter the river as the male walleye begin to flood into the river system.  By the beginning of May, the Detroit River is full of “eater” sized walleye with limits of fish usually being caught rather quickly!
The walleye fishing technique is called vertical jigging.  This means you will get to work the lures, feel the strikes, and set the hook on giant Detroit River walleye!

What to bring:  Dress for the weather!  All fishermen need a valid Michigan fishing license.  Snacks, drinks, or anything else that will make you comfortable while on the boat.  Restrooms are located close by.
